in the boston immigration court omar obama testified not only had he met his nephew but barack obama even lived with him for a short time. the white house said there was no deception. they couldn't find evidence to support the president met his uncle. it is not clear what evidence they were looking for though omar was mentioned in the president's book there was no mention of them meeting. today jay carney pinpointed the problem. listen to this. >> nobody asked him in the past. the president said he, in fact, had met omar obama when he moved to the cambridge for law school. he stayed with him for a brief period of time until the president's apartment was ready. after that they saw each other once every few months while the president was in cambridge. after law school they gradually fell out of touch. >> in case you missed it jay carney said the problem was nobody asked the president if he met his uncle. the white house says he's not seen his uncle in 20 years. uncle omar was allowed to remain in this country because of his good moral character. the white house didn't intervene at all in the immi

or rejected including but not limited to comprehensive immigration reform which passed the senate over five months ago ending employment discrimination, which more than two-thirds of the country supports and a farm bill which the house gop used to slash food assistance by $40 billion and therefore assured its demise. so far the likelihood of a budget deal is anybody's guess as house budget chair paul ryan told "politico," we're talking but it's premature to say anything now. if the parties fail to reach a deal. or more likely if house republicans reject a deal, the government will again shut down on january 15th. and less than a month later on february 7th, the economic bomb that is the debt ceiling is set to go off. i can't believe i have to say both of those things again. with all of this hanging over his head speaker john boehner channeled his newman, what me, worry? approach to congressional deadlines. speaking before the break boehner seems completely nonplussed he provides over the least productive congress since world war ii. >> listen, we have a very divided country and a very divid
